GOG, the popular DRM Free games storefront, will be enabling two-step authentication on all existing GOG accounts on October 24th, improving the security of the platform.

An option for two-factor authentication was added to the GOG platform in March, giving users an extra layer of protection if they desired. This new change will be adding the additional security step to users by default.  

While two-factor authentication is a great security tool, GOG does understand that a lot of gamers find this extra protection as an unnecessary waste of time and will allow users to opt-out of this security update. Details on how to opt out of GOG's two-factor authentication here.

Security is a very important aspect these days, especially when money is involved. Nobody wants to lose access to any of their game accounts so adding extra security to GOG is an obvious step for the platform for the platform to take, especially when Steam already has their Steam Guard system in place.
